Bangalow House is a self-contained three bedroom tongue-and-groove timber house built in 1905, with 10 foot ceilings and varnished floors. It looks out over a large park, but is only 100 meters from the main street of Bangalow. Once you are here you can forget the car and walk to all that Bangalow has to offer, including several excellent restaurants offering great wines, without worrying about the drive home.
The house surrounds are quiet and leafy, so are perfect for a family. As well as a large backyard, the house has a paved courtyard with outdoor furniture. A selection of fresh herbs outside the back door will also add zest to your cooking. The leafy surrounds are full of local birds that will entertain you as you enjoy an evening glass of wine on the front deck. The area abounds with wildlife.
From the house you can stroll to all of Bangalow's attractions: the Saturday farmers' market is one minute away, the historic A&I Hall even less. Take a relaxing jaunt to see Turkish carpets, Japanese kimonos, art, books, clothes, French patisserie, organic fruit and veg, antiques and curios. Bangalow also has one of f the best pubs, and best pub restaurants, in New South Wales. All of this is just a short walk.
The house has 2 queen-sized beds and 2 single beds and can accommodate 6 people. Egyptian cotton linen and bath towels are provided. The house has a lounge room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom and laundry with washing machine and dryer. As you rent the entire house and surrounds, you have total privacy.
The owner, Paul Mallam, is a landscape photographer and the house is decorated with photographs from Paul's exhibitions, including remote locations such as Antarctica and Iceland.
